The NV Brut Reserve is an attractive, easygoing wine with good up-front fruit and an accessible personality. Flowers, dried pears and spices are some of notes that linger on the finish. This is Lot 23813206659A. Disgorged February 2011. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.

More bass than treble. Full-bodied and voluminous, this delivers subtle, complex shadings of whole-grain bread, coconut and candied fruit, finishing with a distinctive rhubarb preserve aftertaste. It’s rich and balanced on the soft side.
The tiny mousse tells a lot about the quality of this impressive Champagne. It is quite full in style, with flavors of white currants and a rich, but still bone-dry aftertaste. It is a perfect food Champagne, with structure and a good tension between richness and elegance.

Wine maker notes
A lovely color of sparkling gold veiled in soft golden reflections. All the richness and subtlety of this champagne are enhanced by the maturity of the delicate fruit.

Other text
Elegant, sophisticated, intensely flavoured Champagne from this well-loved, family-owned Grand Marque.
Suave, intensely-flavored and beautifully-balanced Champagne from one of the longest-established family-owned domaines. Founded in 1818 by Nicolas-François Billecart, this aristocratic estate is renowned for producing Champagnes that age gracefully over many years. Adding to their own select parcels of vines, they buy fruit from growers in the Marne Valley and the Montagne de Reims. High quality production protocols include long fermentations using estate-cultured yeasts.
